Lucky Rice by Danielle Chang Review
Danielle Chang, who just happens to be the founder of the LUCKYRICE festival which also just happens to be coming to Miami Friday, Nov 11, 2016. The festival brings night markets, grand feasts, and dumplings to America’s biggest cities. Chang was born in Taiwan and raised in Palo Alto. She dreamed of creating a platform to celebrate Asian culture. She decided the best way to do this was through food. Lucky Rice feeds our love of Asian cuisine with 100 recipes inspired by a diverse range of Asian cultures.
If there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I love Taiwan. After spending only a few months there and being forced to try strange new foods, I’m now fearless. Except for stinky tofu…one has to draw the line somewhere lol! This book brought back many memories of my time in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Cruising the night markets with local friends I was lucky enough to find online was a true joy.
Barbecued Squid-On-A-Stick…yup! I tried it and it’s in this cookbook! Taiwanese Beef Noodles Soup, just like I remember it!!! And something I still remember having every morning at my hotel, Tea-Smoked Eggs!
You’ll even find a recipe for Hawaiian Tuna Poke. It brings me right back to the food tour I took on my honeymoon in Hawaii.
If you’re feeling sick or just want to keep healthy, you’ll love the Long Life “Supreme” Broth.
I especially loved the Hot Pot recipe as that was always a special treat when I was in Taiwan.
But more so than the foods I already loved, I found new treasures. The Roman-Chinese Oxtail Stew, for example, is a new favorite. There are stories and food from Thailand, India, Africa, and beyond. Asian culture as truly shared it’s food around the globe and when it mixes with local foods the results can be magical.
If you love food, you’ll love Danielle Chang’s Lucky Rice Stories and Recipes from Night Markets, Feasts, and Family Tables.
